Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Covered Dates

Chocolate covered dates are stuffed with peanut butter and sprinkled with peanuts. They are a simple sweet treat to make in under 10 minutes!

Prep: 10 minCook: 1 hour chill timeTotal: 1 hour 10 min
Servings: 8 dates 1x


  • 8 Medjool dates, pits and stems removed
  • 3 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon refined coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped peanuts
  • flakey salt


  1. Prep & Pit the Dates: Grab a date and slice it in half lengthwise, making sure not to cut all the way through. Peel the date open a bite and remove the center pit and little stem at the top if there is one. Discard the pits.
  2. Stuff with Peanut Butter: Place the sliced dates onto a piece of parchment paper. Scoop a teaspoon of peanut butter into the middle of the dates.
  3. Melt the Chocolate: Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Alternatively, you can place the chips and oil in a bowl over a pot of boiling water (double boiler) and stir constantly until the chocolate is smooth.
  4. Dip the Dates: Once the chocolate is melted, you can dip the date into the chocolate. You can either dip it completely and coat it completely into the chocolate or dip half. I like to dip half because I think it’s the perfect balance of flavors.
  5. Sprinkle: Chop up the peanuts and sprinkle them on top of the dates.
  6. Chill: Slide a plate, baking sheet, or cutting board under the parchment paper and chill the dates in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  7. Enjoy! Sprinkle with flakey salt and enjoy!
